The Alaska Anthropological Association will be holding its 48th Annual Meeting from March 1-5, 2021 as a free virtual conference via Zoom (#AkAA virtual 2021). The theme of this year’s conference is Fostering a Culture of Equity through the Removal of Boundaries. The virtual format of the conference affords the opportunity to offer both research-driven presentations as well as social events that encourage conversations and connections. The boundary-less conference format also offers us a significant opportunity to better serve our underrepresented communities as well as our colleagues from all over the world. We welcome ideas for sessions and presentations in a variety of media, including but not limited to, papers, posters, storytelling, film, panel discussions, and multi-media performances.
